BOISE (AP) â€” Cynthia Adams took a 2,400-mile trip down memory lane in late September.

Now the 52-year-old and her family are searching for answers to what triggered the four-day episode, which began when she abandoned daily errands after a Sept. 24 psychologist appointment and â€” without telling anyone â€” set out on a solo trip to her childhood home in Clara, Miss.

THOMAS â€”Â The way the match began Thursday night it was easy to think the Snake River Lady Panthers were going to roll visiting South Fremont.

Snake River dropped set three forcing a fourth set.
In the fourth and final set the Panthers led the entire way, but had to fight off a very tough Cougar team at the end to earn 25-20 win and take the match 3-1.
